It’s a little too humid out there for my liking today. Dew points jumped into the upper 60s this afternoon, making it feel rather uncomfortable outside. You’ll be keeping the AC on again tonight (and tomorrow too) as the sticky air mass stays with us through the beginning of the workweek.
Through Tonight: A mix of sun and clouds through the evening. Slight chance (10 percent) of a spot shower through sunset. Otherwise, partly cloudy, warm and muggy tonight. Lows ranging from 63-67 degrees. Patchy fog likely to develop late tonight. Winds will be light out of the east at 5 mph.

Tomorrow (Monday): Areas of haze may slow down the morning commute. Becoming partly sunny in the afternoon, with more unseasonable warmth. Highs range from 81 to 84 degrees with dew points in the mid- to upper 60s. A slight chance (20 percent) of a shower in the afternoon. Partly cloudy, warm and humid again tomorrow night with lows in the mid-60s.
Amazing loop of Hurricane Irma: NOAA published a truly stunning loop of Hurricane Irma over the weekend, featuring minute-by-minute satellite imagery courtesy of the GOES-16 satellite. It’s a must watch if you want to appreciate the beauty and the beast of a storm that Irma was.
This is a close-up minute-by-minute animation of Hurricane Irma using the GOES-16 color-enhanced infrared rapid scan at 2-km resolution as Irma made her way across the Caribbean islands and then up across the Florida peninsula. (Note that the GOES-16 data posted on this page are preliminary, non-operational data and are undergoing testing)
